Women's Sport: Vivianne Miedema complements Arsenal FC on the integration of men's and women's teams

Vivianne Miedema

The Arsenal striker complimented the north-London team for the relationship the women's team has with the men's team in terms of the facilities, passion and overall treatment.

“To be honest, we are quite lucky at Arsenal. When I walked in here two-and-a-half years ago, it was like this already, so I’m not used to anything else. 

“At Bayern, we trained in a completely different area, and we didn’t feel part of the club, but here if you come in in the morning, you see the men’s players, and it just feels like home".

Vivianne Miedema was made to "feel at home" when she joined the Gunners back in 2017. Since joining the WSL side three seasons ago, she has scored 66 goals in 69 games and is quickly becoming an Arsenal legend and G.O.A.T (greatest of all time).

With the Dutch international having an astounding 19/20 campaign so far, with 27 goals in just 22 appearances, she has praised the club on sharing the "same passion" for the women's football as it does the men's.

"The contact is there and it is only a good thing, for me it is how it should be. It shouldn't be 'women here, men there', if you do it right as a club, it is how we do it here.

"We all share the same passion and we all go through the same experiences so it can only help each other improve and get better".
